Why Julia chose Northern Coast

This home has been in our family for over 20 years - it was a great escape from the busy lives we have in Portland. It gave our family the time to slow things down and reconnect with each other, rejuvenate from the fresh sea air, a place to relax and hand out!

Casual beach house in prime location

  • 4 of 5

This house is in a prime location, a block walk to the beach. It is spacious and sleeps 12 comfortably. It is definitely a "beach house" with a casual setting. There are two main areas in the house to gather, both with TVs and tables. Three bathrooms and showers, which is nice. There is also a space downstairs, which is more modern and up to date with two bedrooms and two bathrooms and nice kitchen; however, the ceilings are very low. My sons are 6'2 and they had to bend their heads to fit so anybody taller than 6'0 should not rent that portion.

As with most beach rentals, the pots and pans, knives, etc aren't the best so if you plan to cook I recommend bringing your own pans and knives. However, we had everything we needed. Large deck surrounds back and side of house.

The owner does a nice job of making sure you have what you need for the stay. We will be renting it again next year!

Big comfortable house, not so comfortable beds

  • 3 of 5

We had a good stay and the house is a decent size and is comfortable. There is plenty of space and bathrooms so good for large families. You do have to go up a full flight of stairs to get to the house though so keep that in mind.

The location is excellent! A few things didn't go well:

- The beds are clearly old and are not very comfortable. I don't think we'll re-rent unless they get new mattresses so they don't squeak every time you move and are more comfortable

- The wireless didn't work (not a big deal)

- The ceilings in the lower unit that you can rent for overflow are about 5'10" so if you're tall, it's not the best.

Great location! Big house! Dirty!

  • 1 of 5

This house is in a perfect location, close to town, the prom and the beach. And it's big and had plenty of beds for our large group. That's where the pros ended for us!

This house is in SERIOUS need of a deep and thorough cleaning! I understand and appreciate that it is an "old beach house", quirky and has character. I LOVE these kind of houses. However, basic cleaning and sanitation is COMPLETELY lacking. Very few surfaces were even dusted. Some decor had cobwebs on them. Visible crumbs, M&M's and more under couch in living room. Stairs had not been vacuumed. Food crumbs on kitchen cutting board. Coagulated grease left in pot that was put back in cupboard. Inside drawers and cupboards in kitchen look like they haven't been cleaned in a VERY long time. Some utensils had food residue on them. Oven also hasn't been cleaned and was simply GROSS! Electrical outlet in kitchen comes completely out of the wall. There was a review from August 2013 that stated the same thing of said outlet. Electric coffee maker had no lid and grounds were still in basket. Accent pillows on furniture are soiled and stained. We bought tablecloths to use on the kitchen table because it was tacky/sticky. I never even addressed the outside, as there appears to be no care for it either. The table on the deck was so wobbly, we were afraid it would collapse.

I supplied photos of some of the issues and requested my cleaning deposit back. A fraction of the amount was returned. I was told that everything gets deep cleaned in the house in the spring and that they have had some previous "rough" guests that didn't take care of the house. That really isn't my concern when I have rented a place and paid a cleaning deposit with the anticipation that we would have a clean house. I could NEVER rent a house to anyone in the dirty condition this one was in and require a cleaning deposit!!!

Communication also is less than desirable. Not sure how responses can be missed when they go through the website. Or when voicemails are left and call not returned. I had to ask for check-in instructions the day before our trip.

I will definitely put more weight on the negative reviews when renting a house going forward.

Best 4th of July ever!!!

  • 5 of 5

One of the main reasons this 4th of July was such a success was because of this great house! It was the perfect size for our group of 16 and it was so close to everything!! I have stayed in seaside before and this location cannot be beat!! So glad we were able to find this place and spend the holiday there.

Great place for a large family or two.

  • 4 of 5

We stayed in this house for four nights. We really enjoyed being able to cook our own meals and the very short walk to the beach. The rooms were comfortable and the house was overall clean. It was a special occasion for us as the other family we came with has a son who was planning to propose to our daughter on the beach. By the way, she said yes and the rest of our summer is now very busy planning a wedding! C

Good time at Seaside

  • 5 of 5

We 16 people in the upper and lower units of the house and everyone had a bed except one six year old who slept on sofa cushions in the upstair bedroom. Three of the kids were up there and loved it. The downstairs unit worked for 6 adults and one fussy baby. No one heard the child's cries in the upstairs part of the house. At one point we had 4 cars and a pickup parked behind the house though it was very tight for the pickup and was moved to the street. We could walk to most of what we wanted to see and there is a Safeway a 10 minute walk away. Everyone was happy with the house and some are talking about going back next year.
